Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)

Final eligibility period for the CESB is August 2 to August 29, 2020. All applications for the CESB must be submitted before September 30, 2020.

The CESB will provide financial support to post-secondary students, and recent post-secondary and high school graduates who are unable to find work due to COVID-19, and who are not eligible for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit or Employment Insurance, or are unable to find work due to COVID-19.

This benefit will provide $1,250 per month for eligible students or $2,000 per month for eligible students with dependents or disabilities.

Students who are eligible for the CESB can apply through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). If you haven’t ever filed a Canadian tax return, you have to register with the CRA ahead of applying. This benefit will be available from May to August 2020.
